ENGLISH ELEGANCE

ONE WEST KOWLOON, HONG KONG

1148SQFT, 2018 COMPLETION

 

The Client posed a challenge by providing a brief that needs to satisfy functional needs with fengshui’s masters advices on the location of

artifacts, in particular the problem of blockage of circulation by the fish tank that must be located in front of the entrance. By means of

design we managed to turn the problem into opportunity as the feature of the house, by raising the fish tank on stilts, a simple but lighter and

elegant treatment.

The living and dining area are lined with cabinets for maximum storage, decorated with simplified trimming line that depicts a sense

of English touch that the Client couple is fond of. Another cue of English elegance is the ‘fireplace’ , which used to be a centre of the

Western home, housed the AV entertainment centre, that is the modern version of the “centre” for the typical Hong Kong family.
